    Forum notifications... Bitch and moan

    These random E mail notifications are ridiculous.

    I am on many forums.... THIS is the only forum that I get notifications that are a week or more late...

    tonight for some reason I am getting notifications every 3-4 minutes... from posts a WEEK ago.

    Maybe we need to make this a pay only site.... so that Ya'll can afford proper site administrator.

    goes along the same lines as the last Hack debacle .... endless unneeded password changes... etc.

    Blah blah blah....

    nevermind me...
    just blowing off steam.


    I will just go into settings and turn OFF E mail notifications..

    That will cure things....

    not the best solution... but it works for now.




    now wheres my beer?

    All forums have their share of problems.

    This one won't let me log off some times. I log off and come back a day later and their I am still logged in.

    I can send PM'S on here, but can't see them after I send them to tell what I said or if they got them.

    These are Tech Dept issues and will be passed along to them.

    Yeah I just looked at your settings and the only thing you have turned on is for private message notifications. I can turn it off for you from my end, but dunno if they'll help anything.

    As Steve said, there's tech issues and some of those we just don't have the ability to solve. Unfortunately penton has very little interaction with us so we often are just as in the dark as everyone else when stuff like this happens.

    You can turn on the save sent messages feature on your control panel (unless you already have and it won't work) George. I can do it from my end for you if you want. One thing to keep in mind is they are saved with your regular messages received and you reach the 700 message limit a LOT faster lol.

    Ask me how I know lol.

    John, I did see that the receive email notifications from users notification is ON.

    Mine is OFF and I don't get emails from anyone about anything site related.

    Dunno if that may be the issue. I can shut it off if you want, just PM me or let me know here. May just be tech gremlins tho.....

    We will get with Dave and see if he may have some ideas.

    Just sent you a PM John.

    Steve,

    If I sent you a PM right now, I won't see it or know if you get it until you answer it. Maybe I just don't know what to turn on or off to see the PM's. If I go into my sent file there is nothing there.

    I just reset your account to save private messages.

    Look to the left of your screen on the private messages page and you will see the sent messages icon. Click on it and the ones you send from now forward will appear in that window.

    They should anyways

    You can also request a read receipt. You find that by clicking on the Go Advanced options icon below the PM text window. Then, select the read receipt option which is at the very top of the list directly below the window.

    Re: Forum notifications... Bitch and moan

    got your pm steve,
    yeah I am pretty familiar with all the settings/options...
    I went back and turned basically all notifications off besides PM messaging.

    I get real time notifications from tapatalk so no real need for email notifications.


    my original complaint was not that I was getting e mails, but the ones I get are days and weeks old.

    if it worked correctly, that would be fine... but like said, tapatalk does a better job anyway.

    my other complaint would be the grey text in settings.... it is sometimes difficult to see the text.... especially in the private message window.

    but once again,
    tapatalk has that covered better also.

    hey,
    THERES my beer!

    thanks and later!

    My forum settings changed on their own twice already; I started getting emailed threads to which i responded without having subscribed to them. Very strange.

    My settings haven't changed... everything is still turned off... But I am still getting e mail notifications...
    I got about 20 last night... all old stuff

    So, I just went in and manually unsubscribed from ALL threads....
    all 35 pages...

    took about 5 minutes.

    That SHOULD stop the notifications... I will just have to go in once a week or so and unsubscribe to any new threads I may have posted in...

    Well,
    maybe Penton is the problem...

    many message boards use the Vbulletin platform and work very well.

    I'm actually not sure how the whole thing works but I would imaging penton is a server? and supplies storage and support?

    Vbulletin is just the operating layout.. ?

    If so, (penton) There are many other places that do that also... I'm sure... but it takes $$ which goes back to my original suggestion of member payments. '

    either volunteer contributions or a pay for certain other privileges fee.. such as unlimited photos in your album or something silly like that...

    I know I would donate a few bucks occasionally to have things run smoothly.
